adidas vintage jacket DeMatha star finishes first at college meet

But last weekend, the Stags got a taste of a different level of competition, as the team traveled to Raleigh for the Adidas Raleigh Relays at North Carolina State University.

There, a few DeMatha athletes got the chance to compete with Division I and Division II track athletes. But standout sprinter Darryl Haraway Jr. didn just compete, he won. State, Virginia Tech and Rutgers,

It was cold on Saturday and several teams skipped events they were scheduled to run in.

The Falcons coach was speaking of the cold, which had altered the turnout. About 65 to 70 percent of the 24 teams scheduled to participate actually made the trip to Central to compete in the sub freezing conditions.

Missing from action were programs such as Riverdale Baptist and a number of out of county schools scheduled to compete. The lone Montgomery County participant, Northwest, won the boys side of things,

adidas windbreaker Demand up for LL Bean’s iconic Duck Boot

Bean is kicking it up a notch as demand continues to surge for its iconic boot.

The Maine based outdoors retailer has leased a larger, 110,000 square foot building and plans to install a third injection molding machine to manufacture the rubber soles. It’s also hiring 100 more workers in the new year to make the boots.

Annual sales have grown from fewer than 100,000 a decade ago to more than 600,000 this year. The company expects to top 700,000 next year and 1 million in 2018.

A combination of form, function and nostalgia is behind the demand, said Willie Lambert, Bean’s merchandising manager for footwear.

“It’d kind of like everything old is new again,” Lambert said. “They’re gravitating to the past and anchoring themselves into it.”

The original leather and rubber “hunting shoe” was designed by Leon Leonwood Bean 104 years ago. The formula hasn’t changed they’re still handmade in Maine but Bean might roll over in his grave over some of the colors offered these days.

There have been red, blue, white even purple versions in recent years. And the new manufacturing capacity that will come online in the new year will provide greater flexibility to provide funky colors, said Donna Berube, production facility manager.

The success is rolled up in a retro trend that strikes a chord both with baby boomers and younger consumers who missed out on phonographs and tape recorders.

The Urban Outfitters store in Manhattan currently has record players, old school vinyl albums and tape decks in the front window this holiday season, Lambert noted. Doc Martens, Levi’s jeans and Stanley thermoses are all items that have benefited from the trend.

Currently, some of the hottest selling shoes are Adidas Stan Smith and Superstar sneakers, designs that saw their heyday 40 years ago, said Dan Hess, CEO of Merchant Forecast, an independent research company. Bean should take a measured approach to growth, because it’s likely double digit sales growth cannot be sustained over the long haul.

“There can be times when true classics become trendy,” Hess said from New York. Bean boots, but they are right now.”

When it comes to footwear, other brands have enjoyed a meteoric rise only to fade, including recent examples like Vibram’s FiveFingers and Crocs. But Lambert believes the Bean boot is different, more akin to classic Converse’s Chuck Taylor sneakers that remain popular year after year.

The “Made in the USA” label affixed to the boots is rare in footwear. Bass, Cole Haan, Sebago and Dexter are now made abroad.

Bean is committed to making the boots in Maine at production plants in Lewiston and Brunswick. The new building will double the size of the operation in Lewiston; the new molding machine the third will be installed this summer at a cost of $1 million.

Lambert joked that the company needs to be careful what it wishes for with expanded production.

He said that past shortages and backlogs have only added to the hype surrounding the boots. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.)

adidas marathon 80 Delivers EbLens To Pro

HARTFORD Amida Brimah might still be a work in progress, but there is no doubt that progress is being made. Price, the former UConn guard and NBA veteran. “He’s always been a defensive force, but he’s learned how to use his size, finishing around the rim. He’s been showing a lot more versatility, making 15 foot jump shots. I’ve seen him make the jump hook with both hands this summer.”

Brimah, going into his junior season at UConn, has spent nearly the entire summer in Connecticut. In the Greater Hartford Pro Am, he has really let his game hang out. In the semifinals Monday night, Brimah had 24 points, 14 rebounds and four blocks as Team EbLens earned a hard fought 108 104 victory over Pauly Chute Slamm, the best team in the league throughout the summer. at the Sport and Medical Sciences Academy.

Brimah made brief appearances in the Pro Am before starting at UConn in 2013. “When I got him his freshman year, he’d be in foul trouble in the first 30 seconds,” Kirksey said.

Last summer, Brimah had to rehab a shoulder following surgery. This summer, it has been all work on his game, and the results are showing. Brimah, a 7 foot center from Ghana, was listed at 217 pounds last season, but he looks quite a bit thicker in the upper body and more confident finishing around the basket against older, stronger players. Brimah also spent a week as a counselor at the Adidas Nations camp in Long Beach, Calif., battling with top competition.

“I haven’t had any time off,” said Brimah, “and every minute I’ve been on the court, I’ve been working on my game. I’m getting older, and I’m getting smarter. I’ve played a lot of games now, and I have a lot more confidence.”

In Brimah’s first season at UConn, his defense was the key asset as the Huskies won the NCAA Tournament and he did have that crucial three point play down the stretch against St. Joseph’s in the opening game. As a sophomore, he shot 67.4 percent, averaging 9.1 points,
climacool adidas Delivers EbLens To Pro
4.4 rebounds and 3.5 blocks. Coach Kevin Ollie has been challenging him to get bigger and improve on those rebounding numbers.

With Team EbLens, Brimah is joined by impressive backcourt talent, including Price, who had 13 points and five assists, Doug Wiggins, who scored 24, and Danny Lawhorn, who had 15. Brimah scored early on a jump hook, a short jumper and a reverse layup, but the Slamm, a very cohesive team, jumped out to a lead and held it for most of the game, scoring 39 points in the second quarter to stretch it to 65 57 at the half.

With Wiggins and Price in together, EbLens made its run in the third quarter, surging to a five point lead, and then it became a back and forth affair. Brimah scored on the break, a pass from Lawhorn, to put his team ahead 96 95 with 3:30 left, then had a block on the defensive end and a tip in with 2:16 left to put EbLens back in front. Robinson went 6 for 6 from the free throw line over the final 21 seconds to secure the victory.

Bobby Moore scored 27 points and Sampson Carter 24 for the Slamm.

“You really work on your game here,” Brimah said. “It’s summer time. Playing here, you have a chance go work on your moves against older guys, and stronger guys, too.”

Steven Enoch, the incoming UConn freshman, came in for Brimah in the second and third quarters and played solid minutes, with eight points and three rebounds. “I’m learning a lot from [Brimah],” Enoch said, “learning how to pick my spots out there.”

Hot 93.7 114, Top Dog 101: In the second semifinal, in a rematch of last year’s finals, Hot 93.7 knocked off defending champ Top Dog Entertainment as Stefan Bonneau scored 43 points. Keith Cothran scored 37 and Ryan Gomes 20 for Top Dog.

adidas originals black Delgado don’t shy from championship dreams

If you’ve attended a Davis High School boys’ varsity basketball game lately, there’s no way you missed Collin Kelley or Alexzander Delgado.

Kelley, a fourth year veteran to varsity, is 6 foot 7 and often finds a way to draw attention to himself with a crowd shattering dunk. Last season, Kelley averaged 15 points per game while earning himself Columbia Basin Big Nine first team honors as well as the CBBN Defensive Player of the Year title.

Delgado, a third year varsity member, leads the Davis offense as point guard and plays an enthralling version of fast paced basketball that captivates any fan of the game. Last year, Delgado also earned CBBN first team and All Defensive Team honors while averaging 14 points per game that season.

Now in their third year of varsity together, the duo seems to go hand in hand, like a real life Batman and Robin.

Delgado and Kelley were appointed team co captains during their junior year. They knew approaching the 2016 17 season back then that they’d be taking on a different leadership role and becoming integral assets to the mission for a third state championship. Regardless whatever the outcome of their senior season during 2017 18, both players will cement their unique legacies into the program and inspire current and future Davis Pirates.

Basketball has been more than just a sport the two players do after school every day during the winter. It has also been a path to friendships and to outlets the two players would not have had otherwise.

“If I didn’t play basketball, I think people would view me weird,” says Delgado. “They’d see me as just some quiet kid.”

Kelley agrees, feeling that there would be a loss of some identity without basketball: “It’s helped me meet a lot of people. I think people would look at me and wonder why I don’t play.”

Whether either athlete has wanted it or not, an identity is exactly what basketball has helped provide them. Anyone who has attended classes or clubs with Delgado or Kelley are well aware of the many basketball related comments they receive.

During the offseason, Delgado and Kelley have also been involved in AAU clubs. Delgado has played for Central Washington Select, while Kelley has been with the Northwest Panthers on the Adidas circuit. AAU play has helped maintained the wintertime skills for both players.

Last season, Kelley and Delgado help lead Davis to a 19 5 year. Davis beat top ranked Union, and took down Kamiakin not long after. The Pirates plowed their way through the rest of the CBBN, eventually taking the Big Nine title (despite a hurtful 61 37 loss to Spokane’s Gonzaga Prep early that season).

“I’m looking forward to playing Gonzaga Prep again this season,” says Kelley. “I want to come back and get some revenge.”

On the other hand, Delgado was hoping that a team like Gonzaga Prep would defeat Davis severely again at the beginning of this current season. He felt this would create a scenario similar to last year, and would give the Pirates a specific loss to serve as motivation for the rest of the season.

Both players also think back to when last season’s state championship tournament came along. The Pirates only lasted into the first round before losing to a well equipped Richland squad.

“I thought we could have gone, at the least, one more round further,” reckons Delgado. “We could have gone 20 5.”

The state finals is no stranger to the Davis boys’ basketball team. Kelley was a freshman when Davis last played for a title. He calls that his favorite moment so far in playing for Davis.

But, he’s also looking to change that.

“Winning state is always the ultimate goal,” Kelley affirms.

Alexis Weber, a junior at Davis High School, is a member of the Yakima Herald Republic’s Unleashed program for teen journalists. She serves as the student manager for the Davis High School boys basketball team.

adidas running trainers Delaware sees gains on the battlefield combating cancer

Delaware’s cancer mortality rate dropped two positions nationally, and decreased a full percentage point more than the national average, over the past decade thanks to increased screenings and early detection, according to public health officials.

The state still ranks in the top 20 percent nationally, though efforts to combat cancer mortality have shown promise. Delaware dropped from 14th highest in last year’s report to 16th highest this year. It ranked second highest in the 1990s.

Officials with the Delaware Division of Public Health announced the findings of the latest report, Cancer Incidence and Mortality in Delaware, 2009 2013, during the Delaware Cancer Consortium in Dover Monday.

“Delaware is making great progress in battling the deadly disease of cancer in our state.” said Governor John Carney. “This report shows our successes, but also shows us we have more work to do. rate of 168.5 over the same period.

Women diagnosed with breast cancer at the most treatable “local” stage increased from 42 percent in 1980 to 1984, to 65 percent in the latest report, and breast cancer mortality decreased by 19 percent in the last decade.

Prostate cancer diagnoses at the local stage increased from 50 percent to 81 percent from 1980 to the period ending in 2013, and mortality declined 34 percent among African Americans and 30 percent among Caucasians. Incidences for the former, at 230.5 per 100,000, remained significantly higher than those of that letter group, at 137.2.

Lung cancer, the most frequently diagnosed cancer in the nation and in Delaware, accounted for 14 percent of all newly diagnosed cancer cases and 30 percent of all cancer deaths in Delaware from 2009 2013. Delaware women had the 11th highest mortality rate in the nation during the 2009 2013 period for lung cancer, and men had the 16th highest.

adidas zipper Delaware seeks to become 6th state to offer paid parental leave for state employees

Introduced on the first day of the new legislative session, House Bill 3, would allow state workers to take 12 weeks of paid leave for families with new babies or those adopting a young child.

The state estimates the cost of the new proposal will cost at $2.5 million though it remains unclear whether its fully funded in the Fiscal Year 2019 budget that will be unveiled by Carney later this month. Deb Heffernan.

“Delaware can and should lead on this issue,” saidCarney. “Workers deserve time to spend with their families when their children are born, and this benefit will help us attract and keep good employees.”

Lt. Governor Bethany Hall Long called paid leave critical for new parents and for the child.

“It can also be a stressful time, and the worry of getting the time off, as well as a paycheck, shouldn’t be a barrier to establishing a strong and healthy family bond. It is essential, and everyone should be able to enjoy these types of benefits,” said Hall Long.

Currently, state workers can take unpaid leave and have their position preserved, under the federal Family and Medical Leave Act, but many families can’t afford to go without a second income for that long. Nearly one quarter of moms are back at work within two weeks of giving birth, national statistics show.”Our dedicated state workers deserve to have the time to experience the all important and educational ‘firsts’ with a new child, without the anxiety of leaving their child too soon,” she said.

Under the legislation, full time state employees, including teachers, would be eligible for 12 weeks of paid maternity or paternity leave after one year of employment. New parents would be eligible for leave for up to one year after the birth of a child, or the adoption of a child under the age of six.

“It would save me from having to exhaust all of the rest of my sick time, and it will allow me to continue to get paid during the time I would be home,” said Lori Sebastian, a teacher in the Appoquinimink School District.

Labor unions support the measure as well.

“When starting or adding to their families, our educators and state workers need to be able to spend the time needed at home with their newborns or newly adopted children. They shouldn’t have to choose between bonding with their new arrival and putting food on the table or paying their bills,” saidMike Matthews, President of the Delaware State Education Association.

“This legislation will help state workers remain together with their families during an important time in their lives, without having to worry about how they’re going to pay the bills,” saidMichaelBegatto, Executive Director of Council 81 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees.

My favorite place in Buffalo is Delaware Park. I’ve been running there almost every morning for the last 10 years, and I love its green landscape, big trees and tranquility, especially after a sizable snowfall. The thing I like best about the park, though, is that it’s given me the chance to make so many friends.

Before listing who my Delaware Park friends are, let me tell you who they aren’t. They aren’t the ones who show up on the first nice day of spring, never to return again.

Nor are they the ones who come repeatedly during the summer only to retreat to the climate controlled environment of spinning classes and treadmills once the temperature dips below 50 degrees. These people are merely my acquaintances.

No, my friends in Delaware Park are the walkers and runners who show up regularly in the early morning hours year round, regardless of the cold or the heat or the rain or the snow. While I do say hello by name or wave to some of my friends in the park, I hardly ever speak to any of them. But that’s not because I don’t want to.

It’s just that I have a long commute to work and it never seems like I have the time to stop and chat. Also, I’m reluctant to impose on any of my friends’ space because Delaware Park could be their sanctuary as well, and I would hate to be a nuisance. If they come there for peace and quiet, I want to make sure they have it.

One day, however, when I finally get more time, I’m going to tell my friend Russell that I noticed he was absent from the park for about a week in late October. I’ll bet he ran another marathon and needed some recovery time. If so,

After that, I’m going to tell an older walker that I really liked the captain’s hat, Jackie Kennedy style sunglasses and day glow orange sneakers she was wearing over the summer. Very funky.

And the next time I see Jim and Ann on their morning walk, I’m going to tell them that today is the day I join them for coffee.

Should I ever become more outgoing, I’m going to tell my friend Mary that her little daughter Zoe (who I had a chance to meet on Elmwood Avenue over the summer) is really cute. Then I’m going to tell her that Mary has always been my favorite name for a woman.

I can’t guarantee it, but if I do become more outgoing, I might also apologize to this young guy who wears Adidas track pants for speeding up whenever he passes me on ring road. Don’t take it personally; I’m just very competitive. Keep up the good work, though.

One Delaware Park regular I always wanted to talk to passed away last year. He was a hybrid walker/runner who always worked out in a T shirt, baggy shorts and black sneakers, no matter what the temperature outside. If I could talk to him now, I’d tell him that I considered him a friend, and that his presence in the park is definitely missed.

I’m only 35 years old, and I plan on staying in Buffalo, so I’ll be running in Delaware Park for a while. But when I’m no longer a morning regular, hopefully at least one of my friends will miss me, too.
